WASHINGTON, DC, September 30, 2022 — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Iranian-American women’s rights activist Masih Alinejad will receive the 2022 Oxi Courage Awards. The Awards will be presented in Washington, DC on October 27, 2022 at the 12th Annual Washington Oxi Day Foundation Courage Awards at the US Institute of Peace.

Zelenskyy will join live from Ukraine to address those gathered at the Courage Awards. Alinejad, who is living in a safe house under FBI protection (since August when police arrested a man planning to take her life, just two weeks before a violent assailant operating under similar motivation nearly killed author Salman Rushdie), will appear in person.
